Re: Advice about Naish Ride

... If you are going to be riding in ultragusty conditions, then go for the park. The canopy is a bit tighter and the kite handles gusty wind o par with the bolt...which is insane IMO... ahhh - the Bolt! Was out on Tuesday in 25, gusting 30+ with a 10.5 and love that thing. Once dialed in this geni...

Re: Terrible News from Perth

ahhh - this forum at its best, when all the know-it-alls and know-it-better come out. Actually I spent an hour or so reading thru the ORIGINAL forum and associated posts of actual eyewitnesses and people who were trying to help. Very recommended stuff to read. Let me point out two revelations I had....

Re: California Kitesurfing

PS: A bit puzzled over the weather though ? Boots and Hoods ? How cold is the air and water since it is close to full winter suit ? They are way up in the 'redwoods', Santa Cruz area, which is NorCal. Most people associate California with SOUTHERN California, aka SoCal. And yes, the Pacific is quit...

Re: Naish Park 2014 review

Well, you kinda' proof my point. And I don't mean this in any condescending way. If we spend 1000+ bucks for a kite we don't want to hear it sucks ... I.E I fly a Bolt. Love that thing. One of the greatest things happen to mankind after canned beer and sliced bread. But I don't need a 'kite pimp' to...

Re: Naish Park 2014 review

Personally I think it is key to not take everything super serious. :) I do agree. I am just tired of this 'team-rider-gear-pipping'. It doesn't any good to a company unless it is real grass-roots like the 'strutless Maui' thread. Here are real people real involved in a real development and it is fu...

Re: Naish Park 2014 review

Sorry guys, that's not a 'review', that's UN-paid advertising. 80% of this 'review' is just hot marketing steam and rather appalling for me as a Naish rider.

Re: is it impossible?

interesting, interesting ... my $.02 - safety has an upper and a lower level. I personally bounce between them all the time. A helmet and an impact vest when going into waves? Hmmm I choose not to and have several reasons. BUT I am AWARE of what I am doing. Same for the leash. I have a 8ft leash on ...

Re: SPI - everything but the kitchen sink

awesome! Guess we picked the right spot for our vacation rental; we are latitude with Convention Center. We basically can walk up to a 'windsurfer's launch' area at the bay side, but I am not quite sure what the rules are. 8) Speaking of rules: A while ago I've seen a map (USCG?) with all dos and do...
